CLAIM: Jennifer Aniston Had “Hot Birthday Date” With Jake Gyllenhaal

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


According to a story by the combined forces of X17Online and Life and Style, “Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 42nd birthday on Feb. 11 by having an intimate dinner with Jake Gyllenhaal in NYC.”

After noting that Aniston’s “hot birthday date” with Gyllenhaal was at New York’s Spotted Pig restaurant, a so-called “eyewitness” is quoted as saying, “Jake and Jen looked really happy and really seemed to be enjoying themselves.” That same “eyewitness” added that they “looked very comfortable with each other” and “were glowing.”

First, Aniston did NOT have a “hot birthday date” or an “intimate dinner” with Gyllenhaal. Her reported “intimate dinner” date included 30 of her friends, such as Adam Sandler and his wife Jackie Titone, Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, her publicist, her agent, producers of Just Go With It, and several other pals like Gyllenhaal, with whom she’s remained friends since they filmed The Good Girl.

Gossip Cop would love to know who X17Online and Life & Style‘s so-called “eyewitness” is because Aniston and friends ate in a private room, and the “eyewitness” somehow managed to miss that the “intimate” dinner included a big group that included Sandler and Jackman. Oops, try again next time.

It should also be noted that even though X17Online is a paparazzi agency, it has NO photos of Aniston with Gyllenhaal, let alone any picture of them to indicate they were “intimate.” Instead, there are two individual pictures of the stars, which are slapped together (above) to falsely convey they were on a “hot birthday date.”
